This is an unbelievable place. Gardens tea house ponds. All I can say is it is incredible. I also enjoyed the old china town shops in the area. Fun for kids.

These gardens delight in every season and I often walk here with my camera. Also having tea in the teahouse is extremely peaceful. If you are lucky music will be playing.

This was a super serene serendipity in the middle of downtown. It redeemed Portland for us a bit. The tea house is a must. We had Jasmine Pearls and the marbled tea egg (2 actually! Yum!). Go early so as to catch it with the...More

Out of the four days spent in Portland, we picked the one day it rained to spend downtown, not intentionally, it just worked out that way. The 3 of us decided to visit this beautiful Garden for photo ops and are so happy we did!...More

The pond was a nice getaway from outside. A circular path surrounded the pond providing many spots to gaze at the water lilies and search and follow the koi.

Visiting the Chinese garden was a highlight of our trip to Portland. It's a quiet contemplative spot, with surprising views framed by the gorgeous plantings, the buildings, entry ways and bridges.

This was a very pleasant surprise. Having visited China I was impressed with the authenticity of the garden. Once inside you forget you are in the middle of a large city. Added bonus is the wonderful tea house. Don't miss it.

Loved visiting the Chinese Gardens when I was in Portland. Gardens are very well maintained, peaceful and the art work was also very special. There was a young girl playing Chinese music and she did an amazing job. Very nice touch to my visit.

Definitely a place to see in Portland. Beautiful traditional garden with informative brochure provided. Right in the middle of Chinatown. Worth an hour of your time to check out.
